Boy oh boy are you guys in for a special episode today, as today I am joined once again by, “easily one of the best of the best”, Matt Kibbe!
Matt returns to The Brian Nichols Show to discuss his newest venture over at BlazeTV- Kibbe on Liberty, where “Libertarian Matt Kibbe puts aside politics to have mostly honest conversations with mostly interesting people.”
Listen as Matt and I start off by discussing the importance of liberty organizations that engage young people, like that of what Cliff Maloney is doing with Young Americans for Liberty (YAL). Later, we dig into his new show, Kibbe on Liberty, have a fun-filled chat about Hayek, and then dig into Trump, the Mueller Report, and Bob Barr. Finally, we conclude by discussing Matt’s 2020 “wish list” of presidential and touch on the topic of one Congressman Justin Amash’s possible future endeavors…
Matt’s Bio: Matt Kibbe is the President and Chief Community Organizer at Free the People, an educational organization turning the next generation on to the values of liberty. We reach the “liberty curious” through social media, video, and storytelling. Kibbe is also an Executive Producer at CRTV, where he produces “The Deadly Isms,” a documentary series about the dangers of all flavors of authoritarianism.
He is the Co-Founder and Partner at Fight the Power Productions, a strategic communications firm focused on video production, social media branding, and compelling storytelling.
He is also a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Austrian Economics Center in Vienna. In 2004 Kibbe founded FreedomWorks, where he served as President for 11 years. Steve Forbes said, “Kibbe has been to FreedomWorks what Steve Jobs was to Apple.”
Against his better judgment, Kibbe occasionally gets involved in politics, serving as Senior Advisor to a Rand Paul SuperPAC, and creating AlternativePAC to support liberty candidates. Back when Yoda was a teenager, Kibbe worked as Chief of Staff on Capitol Hill, as Budget Director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and at the Republican National Committee.
Dubbed “The Scribe” by the New York Daily News, Kibbe is most recently author of the #2 New York Times bestseller, Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff: A Libertarian Manifesto. In his spare time he appears on Old Media, including FOX News, MSNBC, CNN and HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher. Most of his best material is lifted from his three liberty-minded cats, Roark, Ragnar, and Rearden.
